½ cup water (best: alkaline water)
½ avocado
1 cup chopped broccoli
½ cup cashew nuts
½ cup alfalfa sprouts
1 clove of garlic
1 tbsp. cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch of sea salt and pepper
Some parsley to garnish




Directions:
1. Put the cashew nuts in a mixer or food processor, add some water and puree for a few seconds.

2. Add all the other ingredients (except the avocado) one by one and puree each time for a few seconds.

3. Pour the soup in a pot and warm it up to room temperature. Season with salt and pepper. Meanwhile dice the avocado and chop the parsley.

4. Pour the soup in a soup bowl or plate, add the avocado dices and garnish with parsley.

That's it! Enjoy this wonderful healthy soup!

Recipe
Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes.

Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats).
So this recipes makes a great team.
